In Deathloop you will find that the enemies you encounter are well armed, including personal defense systems such as watchtowers. These enemy shells can cut you with shots in pieces, so it is important to disable protective turrets when you meet them. This guide explains how to deactivate and even control protective leaves in Deathloop and switch against your enemies.
To disable protective powers in Deathloop
If you get close enough to a tower, you can deactivate it by removing the battery. You will find the tower battery pack on the back of the tower. It has a handle and lights on displaying the power level of the tower. Go or sneak on it and interact with the battery to disable the tower. As soon as the battery is taken out of the tower, it can no longer shoot or recognize them.
How to chop towers and controlled
The Hackamajig, which you get at the beginning of Deathloop, will come into play here. When the tower is turned on and tuned to enemies, you must use the hackamajig to chop the tower. Just score the hackamajig and look at the tower and you will see a request as in the picture above. Press and hold the L1 button (PlayStation) and you then have control over the tower.
Shells under their control have a green tracking beam.
How to use Turret
Shells that are under your control have some other options than those that are not. You can turn off protected turrets under your control without removing the battery. They can be folded up into a small briefcase that is easy to carry. If you carry the tower in the form of a briefcase, you can easily set the tower by holding down the square button (PlayStation).
If you want to be really creative with the tower in Deathloop, you can use Hackamajig from afar. Just drop the briefcase anywhere and you can chop you with the hacking tool from afar. That way, you may be able to meet your enemies. This remote control also works in both directions. So if you want to deactivate the tower with your hackamajig from afar, you can do so.
And that’s all you need to know about deactivating protected taps in Deathloop, hacking and controlling watchtowers in the game.
